About the Designer
George Kovacs George Kovacs Italy (1926 - 2007)

For over four decades, George Kovacs has been a name synonomous with contemporary design. Mr. Kovacs is a pioneer in the fusion of clean lines with unexpected twists and curves, resulting in pieces that had a modern appeal with a retro flavor. Mr. Kovacs designed and manufactured his products from his facility in Brooklyn, NY up until a few years ago. His studio, designs, and naming rights were purchased by the Minka Group and his collection was incorporated as a stand-alone grouping. Although the products are now imported, the design heritage remains the same. George Kovacs lighting remains at the forefront of cutting edge contemporary style, and he retains a team of renowned designers, including George Kovacs himself, Rachel Simon, Karim Rashid and Alecia Wesner. These lighting experts have designed a wide selection of wall sconces, pendants, ceiling lights, bath lighting, table lamps and floor lamps. There is nothing better than a Kovacs light for today's modern home decor. Be sure to browse the Kovacs line of lighting and be astonished by the intriguing and forward-looking aspects of cutting edge design and technology. Defined by unusual elements fused with a popular vision of what "modern" means, his lighting creates an individual and powerful sense of space no matter where it is placed.

George Kovacs Madake Swing Arm Wall Lamp



 from Princeton, NJ– Verified Buyer

I got these lights as my bedside reading lights and they work great. I have had them for only six months so haven't had to change the lamps yet but they came with special tweezers to use for bulb replacement!

It's OK, but needs more angling options

 from Boston, MA– Verified Buyer– Top 50 Reviewer

This light is fine but it's fixed in plane. We used them as reading lights for bed and they're really not so great. It works fine and it looks great, it's just not the right solution for us.

looks great, works poopie

 from santa cruz Ca

How the bloody helld do you change the bloody ballast in this lamp Something went pop accompanied by a minor flash and then zilch. So i swap out the bulbs (T5) and still zilch. Where is the ballast and how do you remove and replace it

What a beauty.....what a disappointment.. where's the parts?

 from Port Orchard WA

I read all the comments and agree to all that includes bulb replacement and removal, great design. I'm not an electrician
where to get the parts is my question after seeing the back of the lamp and knowing the bulb isn't the problem.

Beautiful design, light where you want it

 from St Eugene, ON– Verified Buyer

With it's design you can have the perfect lighting at your bedside at the right angle and then put it away where it is completely out of the way.

Gorgeous Piece of Junk

 from Concord, CA– Verified Buyer

First of all, I agree with the review regarding difficulty of changing the bulb. The bulb blew out after about 2 months of infrequent use. I purchased replacement lights and then attempted to change the bulb. The tool included was simply incapable of doing the job. I ended up taking the bulb out with a pair of needle-nose pliers - they actually fit in fairly easily and there was enough room to grasp only the metal part of the bulb as per the instructions. Replacement wasn't horribly difficult though it took some maneuvering. Turns out the lamp itself was dead. Too bad such a lovely lamp is so very poorly made.

well made light

 from nm

I got two of these to use as task lights next to bookcases - They can be extended from the wall to browse through a book and folded flat when not in use.
The pro is beautifully constructed lights with plenty of adjustments. particularly liked that the housing of the lightbulb had an adjustment to get it level.
The (possible) con is that that this is not an extremely bright light, something I was aware of from other reviews. This worked for our application

Great Look

 from Milwaukee, WI.– Verified Buyer

Looks very nice. Perfect light for reading. I bought two of them for above my bed. Just right. You can't tell from the picture but they do stick out of the wall about an inch and a half. It doesn't bother me but it might for some people. [...]

Great reading lamp

 from Chicago, IL

It is a reading lamp essentially - don't expect to light a whole room - that is not the intended purpose.Like another reviewer, I had something 'blow' on one of my two lamps. It is not the transformer but is most likely the ballast, which is a common occurrence with a fluorescent bulb.[...] Great product.

Lovely lamp

 from California– Verified Buyer

The "bronze" is very deep, almost black.
